Little wonder we stumble in life.

Trifecta – Grasp and Burn


They were both creatures of the night, both dead, but not so. The moon in the sky burned like the sun, a few minuscule clouds covering it. It looked like the sun too, a bright round ball hanging in the sky.

They grappled on the ground, rotting flesh meeting demonically youthful skin, fangs baring upon sunken eyes.

Yet soon the vampire realised he might be joining the zombie too soon. Somehow the moon was burning the flesh, melting it away to be just as ugly as the zombie yet soon not quite as alive.

He grasped the fact too late. When had the morning come?

I'm 25, and I blog to improve my writing; I want to be good enough to be published. I also studied Japanese when I was younger. Luckily, I'll be able to continue those studies along with Creative Writing next year in University.

  1. I like the last line a lot – “When had morning come?” And I really like your description of the sun. One thing, though – you’ve got “grasped” instead of “grasp.” You might want to see about switching it around a bit to use the required word! (“he started to grasp,” for example).

    Nice job!

  2. Vampires AND zombies? Perfection. 🙂 Thanks for linking up. Remember to come back and vote!

  3. When will vampires learn to carry a watch?
    Great piece!
